When BJP and Congress united for a noble cause

Female foeticide and low sex ratio have always been a very serious issue which has plagued our country. As compared to other states it probably has impacted Haryana the most. Even though historically Haryana was a laggard, in recent years, under the tenure of CM Khattar, the figures have drastically improved.

Recently a report had emerged which claimed that after the Haryana government had cracked the whip on illegal sex determination centers, certain cities of Punjab had been made a safe haven where such activities are were carried out unabated.

It was also reported that whenever someone in Haryana wants to carry out illegal sex determination, they are directed to their Punjab counterparts were it can be conducted.

The health department team of the Haryana government in the past 2 years has reportedly conducted 22 raids in various districts of Punjab to find these centers.

The current CM, ML Khattar seems to have taken a hands on approach for the whole issue as officials claim that whenever some information is ascertained about illegal centers, it is shared with the CM’s office and permission for raids is granted.

The report claimed that a recent raid at a hospital had exposed how the authorities in Punjab had failed to act against these illegal centers.

So when this report emerged on Twitter, it was quoted by the Haryana CM who belongs to the BJP. He appealed to the newly elected Congress CM of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh to firmly deal with illegal sex centers in his state to ensure a bright future for women:

If this CM of neighbouring state was from AAP, one could have expected some abuses to PM Modi fot this problem. But Punjabis had luckily kept AAP away, hence Captain Amarinder Singh came into the picture.

People might have expected that as Captain belonged to the Congress, he might have disregarded the appeal. But instead, he thanked Khattar for bringing the serious matter to his notice and promised strict action against all such centers:

Amarinder Singh further tweeted that he had acted against these centers during his previous tenure and would make sure to wipe them out again:

This above instance might be the classic example of how leaders despite their political differences, decided to unite for a noble cause. This cooperation was also acknowledged by the MOS Social Justice and Empowerment who called it a great example of good governance:

Also it is ironic that the newly elected Congress CM has assured to act against the illegal centers which were clearly having a field day when the SAD-BJP government was in power.

Going by the efforts of the Haryana CM, it might be safe to assume that he might have even appealed to the previous goverment in Punjab for action but it seemed to have elicited no response. And now a Congress CM might finally help in ending the menace.
